Just southeast of downtown Dallas, in the neighborhood of Piedmont Addition, you can find the woofderful Devon-Anderson Park. Residents in this community love having an expansive green space nearby to explore with their pups and get away from it all.
Devon-Anderson Park is ruffly 24 acres, and nestled into the suburbs of Dallas. It’s largely undeveloped, and covered by trees and prairies. If you come at the right time of year, you’ll see the wildflowers in the prairies put on a spectacular show of colors. There are some trails through this wilderness that you and your best pal are free to explore. From this park you can hook onto the Lower White Rock Creek Valley Trails, a 4 mile network of soft surface trails. You’re soon to forget that you’re anywhere near a big city!
On your travels, you’ll come across the Comanche Storytelling Place. This natural limestone shaped amphitheater has been declared sacred holy grounds by the Comanche Nation, and is believed to have been used by Native Americans before European settlement.
The developed portion of the park features large mowed grassy areas that your pooch will love to dig their toes into. These areas are not only scenic, but great for puppy playtime, or kicking back under a tree with a good book. There are also picnic tables, great for gatherings with friends and family.
There is no parking with Devon-Anderson Park, but you should have no problem finding free street parking in the surrounding residential areas. This park welcomes dogs with two paws, as long as proper petiquette is followed. Keep your canine companion leashed at all times, and picked up after. Don’t forget the waste bags! There is a drinking fountain in this park, but if you’re here for a while or it’s a hot day, be sure to bring a bowl or bottle for your furry friend.
Devon-Anderson Park is sure to be a puppy pleaser!
